1 can (18 oz/540 mL) red kidney beans or

Preparation

Express Guacamole:
In a small bowl, mash avocado with fork and stir in half the lime juice, the yogurt and salt to taste. Set aside.

Tostada:
Place red kidney beans in a large bowl and mash lightly with a fork. Add garlic, onion, lime zest, the second half of the lime juice, coriander, tobasco sauce, cocoa, cumin and salt and pepper to taste.

Spread about 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the kidney bean mixture on each nacho. Place in an ovenproof serving dish. Top with shredded Canadian Monterey Jack and broil under grill for about 5 minutes or until nicely golden.

Serve nachos on romaine lettuce in individual plates, along with guacamole.

Tips

Suggestion for a healthy balanced meal:

To stay in the exotic mood, serve with rice and a mango-orange juice shake.

Medium Canadian Cheddar can be a delicious alternative to the Canadian Monterey Jack. If you wish, serve this dish with a mild or spicy commercial salsa.
